Welcome to a new era of work rotas & NEW FEATURE: OPEN SHIFTS!

Still writing out schedules by hand? Creating complicated spreadsheets? Chasing up staff on the phone to confirm availability? Come on, you’re far too good for that!

Our smart schedule planner makes it quick and easy to create schedules, add shifts, and assign staff—and publish your rotas online in minutes.

PLUS – NOW including OPEN Shifts.

Open shifts enables you as the employer to release shifts that are unfilled to your staff, giving real time alerts to your staff so they can pick the shift on a first come first served basis – automatically filling it.

Never have a shift left open and give your staff a chance to easily pick up shifts anywhere, anytime.

Our Scheduling tool with Open Shifts is the best schedule management tool in the market. Check it out!

People management on the go

So you finally finish the schedules. All that planning has paid off. Now, it’s down to your people to pay attention and show up. And with a paper schedule or a spreadsheet, that’s… not always how it works out.

The free BrightHR iOS and Android app solves that. Here’s how:

  • checkYour team can check the schedule any time, any day. There’s no excuse anymore that they didn’t see it pinned up on the wall in work.
  • checkWhenever you add staff to a new schedule or edit a shift, they get an automatic notification so they know where to be and when. And you know that they know.
  • checkYour people can even use the app to request time off, so you don’t have to wait until work starts to find out about an upcoming absence.

    Amy made our introductory BrightHR experience a good one. Her presentation was thorough and she was able to easily answer all of our questions. We are pleased that she will be our "on-boarding" client representative. Great service with a smile!

    BrightHR is an excellent platform. We are using it to manage our vacation booking and have found the process of rolling it out to our employees very easy thanks to the support of the BrightHR team and Tyson, in particular. Tyson is always available to answer any question and walks us through every step as soon as we reach out. This daunting task was made much easier with the help of Tyson and the BrightHR team, thank you!
